About the game
Avangard is playing the first of three straight home games
CSKA is on a 1-game road trip.
This is Avangard’s third time opening up a KHL season. The franchise has one victory in those three match-ups, namely in 2020.
CSKA, on the other hand, is opening up a KHL season for the 6th time. However, it has only won on one occasion in those previous five season-beginning games.
Avangard: Alexander Dergachev
CSKA: Andrei Svetlakov
Forward Ivan Telegin who switched CSKA to Avangard this off-season is hoping to collect his 100th career KHL point (currently at 99).
